    Baby Back Ribs question.

    I need to take my baby back ribs off the grill 2 hours before dinner is served. What are my best options to not ruin them before I serve them.
    I plan on wrapping them in foil and putting them in my oven @ 225 degrees. The last 30 minutes I plan on brushing on the BBQ sauce an finishing them under the broiler.
    Will leaving my ribs wrapped for 1 1/2 hours in my oven turn them to mush?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hmmm... I'd put the oven temp at 170° not 225°. If you're going that way.

    If they were my ribs I'd wrap them in heavy duty foil. Wrap them in a towel and put them in a faux cambro. Then once your guests arrive put them in the oven at 300° to bring them back to temp and then sauce them and put them under the broiler.

      That's a loaded question. You have a few options. You say you have to take them off 2 hrs before serving- assuming you need the grill for something else for those remaining 2 hrs? In either case I'd personally skip the foil altogether. I'd only foil for very short-term instances, like taking them to a buddy's house across town to serve. Any real length of time foiled can mushify them.

      If I were in your shoes here's what I think I'd do:
      1) Start the cook 2 hrs later, and finish cooking them in your oven at the full temp of 225 for the remaining 2 hrs so that they finish (pass bend test) at serving time. Unwrapped is my advice there. Although your house will smell like a BBQ joint for a couple days.

      or

      2) Start them at your normal planned time, and do what Wartface recommends- hold them at 170 after they've finished cooking. I still wouldn't wrap. Wrapping will lead to mushy ribs. I'd put them in a lasagna pan (or similar) in the oven. 170 is a perfect serving temp. Broil the sauce on if you must as a surface treatment but I'd stay away from foil.
